Gallery Idol Round 3 :Hello friend!

Hi everyone, it's time again!! I made it into the Gallery Idol Top 15, (sorry for being MIA, my daughter got sick, I got an allergy attack I thought I was losing my eyes and then I worked in my garden like a mad woman) and this round is about "Creating your own Background"

So, this is what I created:


  1. The background image was stamped on white cardstock in Walnut Satin Distress, added Clear embossing powder amd heat set. Then I sponged around with Tea Dye, Vintage Photo Distress, sprayed some water to make it look more natural. The BG image is called  "Grunge Borders" , the sentiment and dies are from "Mini Tags Bundle Set" all from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
  2. The owl image was stamped several times, color with Spectrum Noir Markers, cut out and paper pieced, after that I added Crystal Lacquer to cover the whole image. I tried this new technique from Splitcoaststampers "3D paper Piecing" The owl image is called "Aqui Estoy" from Latina Crafter.
  3. I made the flowers using Vintage Floret Dies, I added Carmine 3D Paint to all the edges. The leaves were also die-cut, I used this and this, Moss 3D paint added to all the edges and folded and bended to give more dimension. ALl dies are from Heartfelt Creations.
ETA: I forgot to add I tried the 3D Paper Piecing Tutorial from Splitcoaststampers to make the owl
